Kerry Warns That Moving The US Embassy To Jerusalem As Obama Promised, Will Give Arabs A Legitimate Reason For Terrorism

According to CBS News, Secretary of State John Kerry insisted that some of President-elect Donald Trump’s foreign policy changes would be “explosive.”

During the interview with CBS News National Security Correspondent David Martin, Kerry was questioned about what he thought might happen if Trump’s administration moves the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, which Trump has promised he would do “fairly quickly.”

“You’d have an explosion, an absolute explosion in the region, not just in the West Bank, and perhaps even in Israel itself, but throughout the region,” Kerry said. “If all of a sudden, Jerusalem is declared to be the location of our embassy, that has issues of sovereignty, issues of law that would deem to be affected by that move and by the United States acquiescing in that move and that would have profound impact on the readiness of Jordan and Egypt to be able to be supportive and engaged with Israel as they are today.”
